S.Sudanese Scholarship Recipients Enjoy Leadership Course

On December 10th, forty-nine excited MBB High School and College Scholars and 2 chaperones met  in the town of Narus, South Sudan for the first-ever MBB Scholars' Leadership Training course. Getting there was the hard part; some traveled 3 days on dangerous roads, braving bandits, floods, and vehicle breakdowns. Being there was the fun part:  Bro. Emmanuel Dan taught computer classes; Sr Edvine Tumwesigye organized the team-building activities, and Sr Marilyn Lacey introduced the leadership exercises.  The interactive learning style was completely new to the participants, who are accustomed only to rote learning.  During the late-afternoon free time, most of the young women flocked back to the computer room to practice 10-finger typing via animated software. By popular demand, MBB will host the training again next year.
